This book discusses the emergence and institutionalization of postsecondary institutions for indigenous peoples around the globe. It presents a comparative analysis of the conditions that facilitate the development of indigenous postsecondary institutions, particularly in four countries: Australia, Canada, New Zealand, and the United States. The book examines the origins and evolution of indigenous sovereignty claims in legal discourses and examines indigenous peoples's control of their own postsecondary institutions. It also analyzes cross-national differences in the structure of indigenous-state relations and shows how higher education systems shaped the emergence of indigenous postsecondary institutions.
